On the other hand, unless I'm mistaken as to who had said what, Karl
wasn't exactly completely guiltless in provoking said list police with
some rather harsh wording at some point.
Second, if list police also do contribute to helping people, then if you
want to try to get their help you should try to play to their rules as
much as you may hate it. Otherwise they will ignore or blacklist your
requests. If that doesn't bother you, then do whatever the h$ll you
want, I guess.
I dislike the listmoms too, but at the same time if people are screwing
with the way things thread it does get annoying when trying to follow
requests for help. *shrug*
